Would You Like to Own a Bike Shop IN Christchurch?

Id say NOT But Rollerston be fine ..

I have a shop lot for sale .. Shop Name being oldest in Christchurch .All The Tools , 1000;s of spare parts,, $1000's of dollars worth of everyday what we call in the trade P and A parts and accessories ..Some Plant also . .and did I say all the repair tools...
I could take the time to help a new owner out for 6 months . .Being every part of the shop/job, or longer if need be .. ^ months could be over 12 months time frame..
Buyer would get the well over 100 years old shop Name of Linwood Cycles , Plus the trading name of East Coast Choppers which has been used since

Electric beach cruisers along New Brighton would be a whole new idea.. Hired out .. .That's unprinted money ready to be printed

King Cycles had a big who harr when they sold the shop and building,,, I have known one of Mr King's Grandsons for about 40 years,,, His dad was the old guy the real old guy was his grand father,,, I spoke to him before the sale , I asked him about Linwood Cycles and he didn't know, He said it was going when he started,,, ,, He had some nice raliegh choppers and healing drasters.. But Im into bmx,, he didn't have any HMX stuff

NZ media pumped King Cycles building sale as Ch-CH oldest Bike shop .. .And its not and never was ,, ,,,

I have HMX500 HMX600 brand new factory decal sets for sale . if ya want some..

An old name is not a good name, dole bludger. Also while googling your name in order to report you to WINZ for benefit fraud, I came across the following comments on your facebook page:

"I've owned Linwood Cycles for ten years We have always had a Road Cycle rider ban .. ..and I dont fix pomas guys bikes wearing ladies undies with a padded crotch ...Real people ride bikes in Jeans"

"No cleats should replace no lycra rule .. as ladies look nice in lyrca LOL its a lot sexist to say No Men in ladies undies"

What sort of name are you trying to sell here? Sounds like the place probably had a reputation as a fuckwit bogan store not a quality cycle shop.

Wow.
How much are you offering for some poor sucker to divest you of the reputation an attitude like that engenders?

LOL thats so funny , ,people writing stuff making claims ,,, , like one music band says ,, written checks with your mouth ya arse carnt cash...

I never done benni fraud .. . .and I dont sell or ever have sold stolen bike parts like that other bike shop is ch-ch

Reason the Com Com took Linwood cycles to court was because ..The com com guy was retiring and a new ex policeman was taking over his job,,, Guy that owned penny cycles in town drunk on a friday nite with these guys and the guy from pennys was hurting real bad ,, He paid two of his workers to sit and McD's for 4 weeks to count my foot traffic ... I have a signed statement from both of pennys workers ..

They used to get on it at a pub in manchester street , which has now gone since eq's//


Linwood cycles is in fact oldest bike shop in Christchurch ,, Maybe no shop now but still in ph book . .and people that know .. know and get looked after fine ...

But?.


So you could be working in a shop, admit that you'd still be working in a shop had you not got taken to court, and you are refusing to work because of a grudge with the government.

Yep no 'benni fraud" at all :rolleyes:

Is this designed to entice someone to buy something from you? Or some kind of brag about how much stuff you have?
